Waxing is an age-old method of hair removal and is the most popular way too. In this process we use warm wax over the body area where unwanted hair persists and then with the help of a cloth or a waxing strip we press it over applied wax and pull it against the direction of hair growth. This will rip of hair by follicle and it works very well for dark or coarse hair. Hair removed by the waxing process tends to grow back after 3-4 weeks; however it is observed that regular waxing delays the re-growth of hair. Waxing is a little painful but the pain gradually decreases with regular waxing sessions.
Shaving is probably the most commonly used way to remove unwanted hair. Shaving may look an easy thing to do considering its painless but this hair removal method does take a learning curve and technique for properly removing hair.Â Finding the perfect shaver too is a thing that only experience may teach, you can buy shaving creams, lotions, foams, or special soaps to help with shaving and to keep your skin well moisturized.
